FREUD Oxford is a cafe bar serving up live music and cocktails long into the night.
On Walton Street, in Oxford’s historic Jericho neighbourhood, stands the majestic Saint Paul’s. It was the first new parish to be created and its parish church the first to be built since the Reformation. Its opening in 1835 gave administrative recognition to the growing new suburb of Jericho.
Wars and changing attitudes to religion led to a rapid decline, and in 1969, St Paul’s was closed. It stood empty until 1975 when the Oxford Area Arts Council bought it for a theatre and exhibition hall. The conversion was incomplete when the Arts Centre opened tentatively in 1985 but was closed again in 1987.
Finally, in 1988 it was leased out as FREUD – to bring the legendary cocktails of its sister café in London to the people and visitors of Oxford.
With its hauntingly high ceilings and decadent stained glass windows, this old church has now become a favourite meeting place for friends, families and two generations of university students.
